🚨Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray warned that foreign hackers are preparing to disrupt and damage U.S. infrastructure, potentially endangering American citizens. Speaking before the House Select Committee, Wray stressed that these hackers are targeting critical systems such as water treatment plants, electrical infrastructure, and oil and gas pipelines. This concern is shared by the highest levels of the U.S. government, and other senior officials, including the Director of the NSA, have also testified about the threat.

Although the foreign government has denied the hacking allegations, U.S. officials are deeply concerned. The appearance follows efforts to ease tensions, including assurances given to President Joe Biden that there would be no interference in the 2024 U.S. elections. However, Wray expressed skepticism about these promises.


U.S. cybersecurity leaders, such as Jen Easterly of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, highlighted vulnerabilities in U.S. technology that foreign hackers exploit. Easterly criticized the technology industry for prioritizing performance and speed to market over security, which makes critical infrastructure inherently insecure.


The Department of Justice and the FBI have been actively working to protect U.S. infrastructures from these cyber threats, recently resorting to court orders to remove malicious code from hundreds of devices. Despite these efforts, the threat remains significant, with foreign cyber operatives vastly outnumbering FBI agents. NSA Director General Paul Nakasone stressed.


Wray also noted that these efforts are not limited to cyberattacks but include broader strategies to undermine American freedoms and coerce citizens.


Now is the time to act, then it will be too late for regrets. We must remain vigilant and take all necessary steps to protect our systems and infrastructure from these threats.

It's time to quantum-proof our defenses and ensure our data remains in safe hands, today and tomorrow.
